No matter how old you are, your oral health relies on routine care from a dentist.
Dr. Kermanshah and Associates treat patients of all ages, which means we make sure children start on the right path to dental health, and we provide a variety of treatments geared toward helping ensure you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime. Here is a brief list of the most common services we provide at our clinic.
Dental cleaning is a preventive treatment that is important for maintaining good oral health and remove plaque and tartar buildup. We also conduct thorough examinations at each dental cleaning to identify potential problems that may arise. It is recommended that patients visit their dentist for a cleaning at least every six months.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease often is a result of insufficient teeth cleaning. When plaque and tartar begin to build up on teeth, the bacteria causes gum inflammation, called gingivitis. When gingivitis goes untreated, periodontitis (bone loss around teeth) can develop. Our staff is highly trained in periodontal treatments including root planing and scaling to remove buildup above and below the gum line. If you require extensive treatment, our periodontist can deliver the latest treatment options. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of gum disease and specialize in the placement of dental implants.
At Star Dental Smiles we understand how scary the dentist can be for children. We encourage parents to begin routine dental screenings as early as age 3 so children can get used to the dentist. We strive to make children’s visits fun and exciting. We offer a range of treatment options for children including sealants and fluoride therapy to prevent tooth decay. Early prevention is key to protecting your child from serious dental problems in the future.
Tooth-colored fillings are similar in color and texture to natural teeth, making them more popular than traditional amalgam fillings. In addition to restoring cracked and decayed teeth, the fillings may also improve the size and shape of teeth. The tooth-colored composite resin used to make the filling provides a more aesthetic option to regular silver amalgam fillings. For large cavities or areas of decay, tooth colored fillings may not be the best option. However, the fillings stand up very well when used in small to medium areas.
Dental crowns are necessary when your tooth has more decay than can be safely repaired with a filling, or if your tooth has cracked or chipped significantly. We provide crowns made of durable porcelain that are custom designed to fit over the tooth in question. When completed, the crown will look just as nice or nicer than your adjacent natural teeth.
We offer metal-free crowns as an alternative to regular dental crowns, or caps. Crowns made from porcelain fused to metal develop a black, opaque color as the porcelain wears away over time. Metal-free crowns use porcelain to strengthen and maintain the white color of cracked, broken or decayed teeth. The porcelain used is similar to natural tooth enamel so the crowned tooth will blend in perfectly among your other teeth. Porcelain is also durable, which makes for a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
Porcelain veneers are a popular aesthetic solution to a host of dental problems. Veneers are thin, stain-resistant layers of porcelain placed over the front teeth to improve strength, shape and color. They are custom-made to match the shape and color of existing teeth. Porcelain veneers might be a possibility if you want to cover cracks, gaps, stains or alignment issues
